On Thursday, June 11, 2015, Massey College, Munk School of Global Affairs and the Bill Graham Centre for Contemporary International History at the University of Toronto jointly hosted a full-day conference entitled, “Canada-Korea Strategic Partnership” at the Campbell Conference Facility of the Munk School of Global Affairs (1 Devonshire Place).

In light of the recent agreement of the Canada-Korea Free Trade Agreement, this conference aimed to critically examine opportunities, challenges and strategies for strengthening bilateral relationship between Canada and South Korea. It brought together high-level political leaders, civil servants, scholars and legal & business leaders for a practical discussion on the future of Canada-Korea bilateral relations.

The first keynote address was delivered by His Excellency Dae-Shik Jo, the recently appointed South Korean Ambassador to Canada, on “The Coming 50 Years: Transforming Possibility into Reality.”

There were three panel discussions at this conference, first on CKFTA, second on defence, and the final one on culture/education. Hon. Justice Michael Kirby delivered a special luncheon keynote address at the Upper Library of Massey College.

This conference was co-sponsored by the Asian Institute (Centre for the Study of Korea & Dr.David Chu Program for Asia-Pacific Studies) at the Munk School, Canadian Studies Program at University College, International Relations Program at Trinity College and the University of Toronto Korean Students Association.
